Ain't it pretty? This is the handspun I finished plying and dying last week. Bad news is, I'm out. So I get to spin more this week. I think I'm going to dye it either a dark purple, or just add black to darken the next batch. The good news is I ran out as I reached the border so it's a great transition area to bring in a new color.
In the process of running out of that, I started some hats.
And have moved onto some socks
They will be going with me to Colorado on this weekends IKEA run. I need a better stool for spinning and I think the IKEA vitamin stool will fit the bill perfectly and every serious knitter needs road knitting. Right?
As for the hats, the top one is from ravelry and the pattern name is Claudia. I really like it and may have to make another one since both of the green hats are chemo hats for a friend of a friend. The bottom green one can also be found on ravelry and is call a Hurricane Hat. The subtle spiral that this particular yarn kind of hides looks like a low pressure storm system which is where I gather the name comes from. The gray and black on is something I made up. It's actually for me but seems to be causing some skin issues. It's a llama/silk blend and my mom is horribly allergic to alpaca and I'm starting to wonder if I have a llama allergy. I've been getting very red and itchy from wearing it. Damn... Maybe I can pawn it off as a gift to someone. After a good washing of course.
Well, Hope you all have a great weekend.
